I've been thinking about leasing him about, ive been considering sending him to a trainer for a few weeks. He is quiet, he just i think hes actually quite green to be honest. Ive decided for the next 3 weeks I am going to pay some experienced trainers and instructors to come help me with him and give advice and if it helps then it will be okay. If it doesnt then I suppose I will have to decide on lease, sell or swap or something. People that have met him love him, think hes got a great personality think if i do some work with him he will be good, but others have judged him and now because of the thing with the lunging everyone thinks he is crazy. It was my fault! Id only ever lunged a few times with an old horse and then i decided to lunge a 6year old for his first time in possible years out in the open, it was all my fault what else could you expect. Ive seen my friends ride him beautifully as well when hes in work, so I know he has the makings of greatness, and my heart says dont give up. But my head says i really need some experienced people to help me before i do something stupid and get him hurt again.
